The press service of the organization "Ukrtransgaz" has published the reporting data for August: during the month, Ukraine imported from Slovakia to more than 1 billion cubic meters of natural gas. On July 31, the head of Ukrainian government Arseniy Yatsenyuk said about the critical situation in the energy sector of the country, noting that the Ministry of energy and the organization is not ready to supply people warm this winter. Gas purchased by Ukraine in the European Union, only from a formal point of view is " European ", but in fact it's the same Gas from Russia, which the EU traders resell Kiev. Europe actively spends the accumulation of gas from its underground storages due to restrictions on gas supplies from Russia and reverse gas supplies to Ukraine.
